Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

We can generalize A173279 to other matrices derived from some sequence S by Smat(n,k) := S(n-r*k), r >=2,

and find that they define sequences B(x) via S(x)= B(X)/B(x^r), b(n) = sum_{t=0..n, n-t =0 (mod r)} S(t)*B_{(n-t)/r} .

This here is the case of S=A000142 and r=2.

FORMULA

A000142(x) = A(x)/A(x^2), where A(x) and A000142(x) are the o.g.f.'s associated with A000142 and this sequence here.

sum_{n>=0} 1/a(n) = 2.519966353393413186683398448854995831308...

a(n) = (A173279^j)(n,0).

a(n) = sum_{t=0..n, n-t even} t!*a_{(n-t)/2}. [R. J. Mathar, Feb 22 2010]
